The common symptoms are:
- Polyuria (frequent urination)
- Polydipsia (increased thirst)
- Polyphagia (increased hunger).
For children with Type 1 diabetes, symptoms may develop quite rapidly in weeks or months. For type 2 diabetes, symptoms are a bit slower or complete absent. As to Type 1 diabetes, may also cause a rapid yet significant weight loss (despite normal or even increased eating) and irreducible mental fatigue. All of these symptoms except weight loss can also manifest in type 2 diabetes in patients whose diabetes is poorly controlled, although unexplained weight loss may be experienced at the onset of the disease. Final diagnosis is made by measuring the blood glucose concentration. For accuracy in analysis, please consult your Doctor.
